Loudoun Athletes and Coaches Take the Plunge
On February 22, five Special Olympics athletes and coaches from Loudoun County sprinted into the Potomac River to raise money for the local Special Olympics program. While the weather was downright balmy (for February), with the air temperature in the 60′s, the water was still a frigid 37 degrees. So it was still no day at the beach, so to speak.
Adam Bell, Russell Turner, Dan Dillon, Joy Cavagnaro and Jeff Erikson joined more than 100 other plungers from all over northern Virginia. The atmosphere was festive, made more so by the warm weather, the costumes, and the cause (Coach Joy strutted her stuff in a feathery Polly Parrot costume). In total the event raised about $88,000 for state and local programs – our total for Loudoun County was over $4000, most of which will go to support our local programs.
Many thanks to all of those who supported the plungers with their generous donations. And of course thanks to the plungers themselves. Next year we want you to join us!

Last August, Special Olympics Loudoun County sponsored our Third Annual Golf fundraising event at Raspberry Falls Golf and Hunt Club located in Leesburg, VA. This event is considered to be our major fundraising venture for SOLC. These golfing events make a significant contribution by supporting over 300 SO athletes in Loudoun County. Over seventy golfers participated on a perfect day to play golf in a beautifully maintained and designed golf course. Many donations were raffled and auctioned during the luncheon followed by prizes being awarded to our top golf teams. Overall the event was considered a very successful outing and SOLC will be looking forward to our next golfing event on July 21st, 2014.
